Krannert Partnerships Office

Building collaborative engagement
through real-world experiences

The Krannert Partnerships Office (KPO) streamlines opportunities for industry partners and alumni to connect with students and faculty beyond the traditional classroom setting. KPO creates unique opportunities for today’s business challenges to be solved through consulting-focused experiential learning projects across all business functions via course-based engagements or contracts with our center partners.

Live Course Engagement with Students

Partner with KPO to identify real-world business challenges for our student teams to solve. The 4- to 16-week engagements will provide your company with up to 1,000 dedicated consulting hours to produce identified solutions, reports, and deliverables all guided by faculty expertise.

Your company can also present genuine business issues into the classroom in the form of a live case. Multiple connection points are provided to present the business issue, host office hours, and potentially manage a student team. 

Begin your partnership by contacting KPO for more details and project guidelines.
